Thanks for everyone's support of our Terry Farrell Fund Car Wash. We raised more than $600, with the help of a special donation from the Vorp Family. Additionally, several Plainsboro food venues, including Aljon's, Dunkin Donuts, It's A Grind and Romeo's, have fire boots for donations through Sunday night as part of our Tips for Terry Program...so even more money will be raised for the fund.
